In Search of a Chair.


“For years I said if I could only find a comfortable chair I would rival Mozart.” – Morton Feldman

From Ralphie:

I set off…

in search of a chair,

not any old thing,

but one that enveloped

my spirit and soul,

a conduit for my muse,

and above all,

a safe haven

from distraction.

In which to think

monumental thoughts,

as deep as the sea,

spanning the heavens

and the mountains below.

After eons of searching,

I found this great treasure,

and brought it home.

I admired it for weeks,

before venturing to sit

in its hallowed seat

and started to think…

or at least I tried,

but nothing would come.

I’d spent all my energy

and all my deep thoughts

on devising a way

to get at my goal,

and having found it,

saw that I’d lost.
